On July 11, 2008, Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz are expected to return for The Mummy 3. It is currently scheduled up against Ben Stiller comedy Tropic Thunder, which DreamWorks also just moved into that spot.

A week later, on July 18, the studio has put Mamma Mia!, the big screen version of the musical to star Meryl Streep. It will face Warner Bros. Pictures' The Dark Knight.

Sequel Hellboy 2: The Golden Army has been targeted for August 1, 2008 with no competition yet.

Then, on November 14, 2008, Universal is looking to release The Wolfman, starring Benicio Del Toro.

Other high profile release date updates for 2008 include: Vin Diesel sci-fi thriller, Babylon A.D., coming February 29; the Fourth Installment of the Indiana Jones Adventures, booked for May 22; and Mike Myers' The Love Guru, aiming for a June 20 release.

I respect Vin Diesel. He seems to know where he stands in the world and takes it in stride. He's not the best thespian, obviously. It isn't that I enjoy his movies but he definately doesn't make them worse.

Ummmm, he helped make the Riddick game good and he wrote the opening to the D&D anniversary. I care about him for that much, at least.

Elsewheresssss, I had no idea Wanted was going to happen. thumbs up
